Carbohydrates increase insulin and cortisol. These are high in the fat storer. Fiber lowers insulin. Protein raises glucagon and growth hormone which are high in the fat burner.
And when you consume fat, saturated fat may raise testosterone. Monounsaturated fats, like olive oil, lower insulin which is high in the fast storer. And polyunsaturated fats, like fish oil, lower leptin and insulin which are high in the fast storer.
